Turkey has proposed to Russia a joint plan of action on the Syrian city of Afrin, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.
Turkish president arrived in Russia on Monday morning. Recep Tayyip Erdogan will have talks with Russian leader Vladimir Putin during a visit to Russia's Black Sea resort of Sochi.
Putin and Erdogan are expected to exchange opinions on regional and international issues, including the joint fight against terrorism and the Syrian peace settlement.
Afrin is part of the Syrian Kurdish region commonly known as Rojava.
In October, media reports emerged about deployment of Turkish military equipment and troops in provinces bordering Syrian Afrin.
Ankara considers the Syrian Kurds to be affiliated with the Turkish Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) listed as a terror organization in Turkey.
